Tactics are rarely followed to the letter, and if the Rangers taught me anything, improvisation is key.
I have left the terms somewhat open so that adjustments can be made in adaption to lower velocity weapons and the like.

Look guys, I'm trying to make things as smooth as possible in my transiton from combat to milsim, so forgive me if some of this may seem overkill or just plain dumb.

Since when does improvisation mean do everything completely different than you said it? Why would you even say that tactic if it isnt useful? It doesn't matter how smooth your transition is, if you're using incorrect strategies and you have no idea what you're doing. Just curious, how many nerf wars have you been to (not implying anything, just curious)

First of all I want to say that I see where Messiah is going with this. I like using military tactics in Nerf, even though nine times out of ten we end up standing 30 feet from each other trading volleys until someone finally hits. Squad tactics are fun, and build trust. Also my group of friends has been training in squad tactics since we were in middle-school, and you'd be surprised how hard it is to teach most people to bound.

Changed my post since you were the first response. I don't want this to become a flame-war, I just wanted the truth. Also, I didn't "phish", the link to your myspace was in your NH profile. Aside from that, I agree with what you're doing, and here's my argument for your side;

Nerf is about fun. Nobody will deny this. The person who goes to a NIC function with nothing but winning in mind can ruin the whole event. That being said, for some people, squad style tactics are fun. And, like I said, they build teamwork and trust. With my Nerf team (all of whom lurk here, but only I post), we use SEAL tactics with a specialized four-man team. We wear BDUs for uniformity and for stability of attire, but we wear black BDUs on account of the rarely seen jungle environment of NERF (and the blazin-orange tips tend to give you away in a stealth situation).

But we will very often ignore what a trained soldier would call "protocol" to do something awesome. We call one of these moves a "Max Payne". My favorite is running straight at enemies during an indoor war, and right when I get inside their range (usually 20-30 ft for Nerf Guns) I drop to a slide on my knees. The idea here is that they fire over me and I tag them as I slide to a stop. It's always awesome, and even sometimes works.

Something in here is what you were going for, right?

Well, yes. But what if they were aiming at your abdomen? adjust, lie flat? The point of training is to get better at something.

Max Payne...I like that. ;)

Edit: I know you didn't phish me, the IP was from new york.
